The Burnout (2023)
Sophie Kinsella
"I devoured The Burnout in one greedy gulp. It's funny, sad, relatable, and brilliantly done. Sophie Kinsella is the queen of romantic comedy."
thumb
None of this is True (2023)
Lisa Jewell
"Gloriously dark and twistier than a twisty thing."
thumb
Between Us (2023)
Mhairi McFarlane
"Everything you want from a rom com and satisfyingly knotty with proper, recognisable characters. She just gets better and better."
